Kate Middleton apparently a fan of the American cable television designer cake show, has convinced Prince William to have Charm City Cakes of Maryland design an exclusive royal cake for their upcoming wedding.
Having designed cakes for the Hollywood, business and political elite, Chef Duff, owner of Charm City Cakes and star of the television series, "Ace of Cakes" has become world famous for his innovative and classical designs. The award winning pastry chef was reportedly honored and humbled to have been asked to do this design.
Following an initial interview session with the couple-to-be, Chef Duff was told to "take a free hand" in what would be an exclusive and one-of-a-kind design for the wedding, allowing plenty of time now to work through proposed design elements in the cake.
The cake design is of course a secret, but after scurrying around back of the bakery and rooting through the trash, several drawings were found that clearly showed Chef Duff's intentions. Scenes of Miss Middleton's youth were depicted on the lower tier of the cake including her affinity for the stage, while the next tier featured Prince William and his horse engaged in a polo match, one of the Prince's favorite activities. The cake topper was actually a functioning but edible rescue helicopter that Prince William is currently training on, and according to the drawings, will elevate up and down on the cake by nearly a foot.
The Queen was reportedly not amused, but Chef Duff responded to the unauthorized publication of his discarded drawings by disclosing that it would have been a surprise gift for the couple, only to be used at the dress rehearsal dinner. The actual wedding cake would be a classic white layer design with all the frills and decorations befitting a royal event.
There was no confirmation of the rumor that the top tier of the wedding cake featured animated William and Middleton characters while rotating.
